The goals with the suggestion above is double:
- give authors all they need: both the ability to opt into scrollbars 
that don't take space, and into scrollbars that do take space but 
don't look ugly when there's no scrolling to do, while at the same 
time also
- All browser vendors to match continue to match platform conventions.
 On platforms that have overlay scrollbars by default: the native 
appearance is always preserved, and the property only changes whether 
the scrollbar also takes space. In Platforms that have non-overlay 
scrollbars by default, the appearance is preserved for the **auto** 
and **auto-hide** values in all cases, and if the platform also has 
(opt-in) overlay scrollbars, it uses that appearance for **overlay** 
as well.
